IFA to modify sailing schedule and capacities
Hollis, Alaska – On June 12, the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) will resume operation with the M/V Stikine. We realize that this challenging time has been a major inconvenience to our customers and commerce from Ketchikan and Prince of Wales Island. The IFA would like to again acknowledge our appreciation for the AMHS and the crew of the Lituya for filling in during this time.
The IFA will resume Saturday sailings on June 13 and will resume Wednesday sailings beginning July 1. The Wednesday sailings have been added to provide critical linkage between the IFA and the AMHS southbound runs on Wednesdays.
Effective immediately the IFA will cap passengers at 85 per sailing. This action is part of our plan to continue to keep our crews and passengers safe and represents just about 50% of capacity. The IFA will continue to “No Sail” on Tuesdays until such time the capacity is needed. Tuesdays will continue to be utilized to do deep cleaning on the Vessel.
